Fresh seasonal ingredients are on the Italian menu in this multi-award winning restaurant. Chef Silvio Mirenzi delights diners with his mastery of our classics and tempts taste buds further with his fresh contemporary take on traditional Italian dishes in the just-updated and modernized elegant dining room that flickers with candles set around the room. An extensive wine list, including wine from some of the world's finest vineyards, and an attentive, knowledgeable staff add to the appeal. Perhaps you prefer a more intimate, private setting. Mistura's private dining room holds 14 people, while the semi-private dining room holds up to 40, to cater to your more private functions.

It was an especially tasty dinner. Our plates were so empty the wait staff remarked on it. Service was very informative friendly and respectful
We thought the parking might be a problem but no worries.
It’s a very comfortable restaurant with just the right amount of ambiance. All in all a definite 5 out of 5!

The atmosphere, location, a service was all great.
However, I couldn't get past the feeling of expecting more from the food.
I have been to many upscale Italian restaurants and wouldn't put Mistura near the top of the list in terms of food, which was disappointing.

My husband and I ate here while visiting Toronto and had a wonderful evening. The food was delicious, and the staff very helpful. The restaurant interior is very pleasant, and we had a high-backed booth which provided privacy and quiet. Both traditional Italian and more eclectic dishes were well-prepared and very tasty.

This is my third time at Mistura. The first time was many, many years ago and the food was amazing . The second time I was there, the food was very salty and I mentioned it to the waitress. I thought we'd try it again on Saturday and the food was just ok -- my fish was very plain, a bit bland. Not sure if it's because Massimo is no longer the chef there. Something has changed since the first time I ate there. I don't find the food as good as it once was.

Manager very good !! Arranged a very “valuable booth” for us even though we hadn’t reserved one ( who knew?) waitress friendly. (Almost too much). Caesar sLad most disappointing. Waited over half an hour for it. A bowl of lettuce. Abit of dressing. Little cheese.I would have returned it but was starving. Main dish (pasta) delicious. Really. Desserts also wonderful. Altogether not the best mistura experience this time. Return? Not for awhile.

It’s been about a decade since I last visited (just because there’s so many new restaurants around tempting me to try). I was definitely treated well. It was as good, if not better, than it was when I was last there.

I would say, try everything on the menu (you may need multiple returns), as it is well worth it.

Our group of 5 friends had a lovely dinner at Mistura. The setting was very pleasing, and the service was excellent. The owner dropped by our table to chat with us and his enthusiasm was great. We were there for Winterlicious, and the meal was delicious, and the portions generous, especially for a Winterlicious menu. The main course of Brasato al Barolo, a slow-braised flat iron, was absolutely superb. I will recommend Mistura to my friends and family.
